When UBERIZATION Collides With Your Industry

Location: Bascom's Chop House, Clearwater

In an study by IBM of over 5,000 C-Suite executives, they stated that their #1 fear for the future was the "Uberization" of their industry or marketplace.

Three dynamic forces are changing every industry as it has the taxi, real estate, publishing and music industries. No industry is exempt from uberization. Over the last five years, disruption has transformed their industries putting the association and their members at risk for competing.

The question is… Do you know what may be lurking your way that is going to create havoc in your industry.

This energetic and informative session will help provide the keys in researching and determining what future disruption is coming your company's way. Tom Morrison will share visuals every executive should be looking at with future business planning: the 3 dynamic forces causing disruption; the 3 reasons why disruption is happening; and the 6 places it occurs.
